send-pack: improve unpack-status error messages
When the remote tells us that the "unpack" step failed, we show an error message. However, unless you are familiar with the internals of send-pack and receive-pack, it was not clear that this represented an error on the remote side. Let's re-word to make that more obvious. Likewise, when we got an unexpected packet from the other end, we complained with a vague message but did not actually show the packet. Let's fix that. And finally, neither message was marked for translation. The message from the remote probably won't be translated, but there's no reason we can't do better for the local half.
